Champion is for home backup power and the Honda is for camping.

NO WAY would I subject my fellow campers nor myself to the noise level of the Champion.
Moving it farther away will probably put it closer to another camper.
I assume your Champion is a NON inverter generator. The Champion inverter generators are very campground friendly.

Yes the 100222 is an open frame non inverter generator

Westinghouse inverter generator just came out last fall. I watched a sound comparison on Utube. They showed the honda, harbor freight and Westinghouse from 3 ft, 12 ft and 30 ft, idle and load. The Westinghouse is very competitive. I think it's W2400i

Ordered one of the 3100 Champion dual fuel inverters from Costco yesterday. Hope it does all I expect. Lot of good reviews out there on this unit. Will be testing it out in 3 weeks at a BBQ comp. we shall see.

I ordered the Champion 3100 Dual Fuel last week from Costco. Said it would take weeks to deliver got it in 3 days. Got it Friday and spent yesterday breaking it in with variable loads for 5 hours. Seems well built and quiet. Couldn't justify the Honda price for using 5 or 6 times a year. All said and done very happy with choice.

Does it run much different on propane? I know watts are less, but can you tell any noise difference?

I have the 9000+ watt one that I use when the power is out at my house. I really like it and the added feature that it is dual fuel. I don't hear any difference in the noise level running it on either gas or propane.

I'm thinking of getting one for my fifth wheel.

Due to the noise level of this generator, it may be prohibited in most campgrounds, Before you make the decision, check the noise level and then consider where you plan to use it.
